Aftershock Rattles Presidential Innaguration

Just felt the biggest aftershock yet-- a 7.2-- during my appointment with the art department. There were 2, the first I was indoors and evacuated with everyone else, the second I was outside on a bench. It's so crazy to be outside because you feel it much more strongly and can literally hear the earth rumble in a deep bass. This one, unlike the countless others we have felt since Feb. 27th, actually scared me again. Classes and activities are cancelled for the day.

Interestingly and symbollically, it also rattled the ceremonial innaguration of the new president, Sebastián Piñera. Here is a link to the NY Times article: NY Times Article
